As I write this, I can look to my right and see my baby Asher snuggled up in a blanket. It's hard for me to believe that he is already 11 days old. Time is moving way too fast.
When I am not showering this boy with kisses and whispering "Mama loves you" in his ear, or deeply inhaling the sweet baby smell concentrated around his neck, I have found myself thinking a lot about HOW I got to this place in my life.
Defying the odds. Being the exception to the rule. Holding a miracle in my hands at 43.
And... teaching other women how to do the same.
My thoughts about HOW I got to this place keep pointing to a single truth.
Mindset is everything.
You see, it wasn't a treatment, diet, supplement, lotion, potion, fertility charm, meditation, yoga pose, or fleeting positive thought that got me to the place I needed to be in order to meet my son.
It came down to the woman I was BEING.
All I have to do is look into Asher's eyes to see this is true.
I had to become the woman who:
- Refuses to live a life dictated by fear,
- Unapologetically owns her desires,
- Expects abundance and miracles,
- Trusts her own intuition more than the opinions of others,
- Makes her relationship the top priority, so she could ensure her baby has a healthy, happy, and loving home,
- Knows what it means to be true to herself, so she can instill the same in her child,
- Makes decisions, rather than being a victim of circumstance, AND
- Had the guts to believe her son was on his way when no one else did. (This last one made me cry as I typed, because it is so fucking true.)
Bottom line? I had to become the woman who was ready to be this boy's mother.
Does this mean you have to be perfect? Of course not.
You simply have to be the woman who no longer lets her old "stories" stand in the way of what she wants.
I want you to know what it feels like to have sweet tears of joy streaming down your face as you hold your baby to your chest for the first time.
The desire to be a Mom is in your heart because it was meant for you.
You've got the "physical" part of this journey nailed...isn't it time you got the mindset piece in order?
When you've got both, you become unstoppable.
My ladies know mindset isn't a luxury, it's a non-negotiable.
They know mindset is the key to unlocking their freedom to be the mothers they were intended to be-- once and for all...and that's why they are successful.
Decide you will be one of them.
Change your mindset, change your results.
Lots of love,
Intrigued? Here's an exercise to take this to the next level...
Mindset is everything. What's the status of yours?
Now's the time to tell yourself the truth. Are you really doing "everything" you can for yourself on this journey--including addressing your mindset?
Ignoring your mindset is like trying to get on the freeway with 3 bald tires.
You know the truth about where you stand...so what are you going to do about it?
